MAGIC IN THE AIR — Using their imaginations and crayons or markers, children visiting the Hudson Highlands Nature Museum in Cornwall on Sunday (Sept. 8) were asked to design a fairy house or toad abode and then find materials during a nature walk to construct it (without harming any plants).

LOOP BUS A HIT — The Beacon City Council on Monday (Sept. 16) authorized the city administrator to include funding through 2021 in next year’s budget for the Beacon Free Loop bus, which was launched a year ago to ease congestion on Main Street. Ridership on the bus, which was decorated by BeaconArts, has risen from 3,000 people annually to an estimated 40,000 in 2019. If approved, the city will spend $12,100 in 2020 and $13,310 in 2021 to keep the bus free. (Photo by Jeff Simms)
